Using Docker Buildkit on Google Cloud Build

I’m trying to use BuildKit with Docker on Google Cloud Build so that I can eventually use the –secret flag. I’m using Build Enhancements for Docker as a reference.

It works on my laptop when I use the following command: DOCKER_BUILDKIT=1 docker build -t hello-world:latest .

When I run it on Cloud Build, I get the error “docker.io/docker/dockerfile:experimental not found”.

Any idea how to get this to work on Cloud Build?

Here is the setup (note: I’m not using the –secret flag yet):

Dockerfile:

#syntax=docker/dockerfile:experimental

FROM node:10.15.3-alpine

RUN mkdir -p /usr/src/app && 
    apk add --no-cache tini

WORKDIR /usr/src/app

COPY package*.json ./

RUN npm install --production

COPY . .

RUN chown -R node:node .

USER node

EXPOSE 8080

ENTRYPOINT ["/sbin/tini", "--"]

CMD [ "node", "index.js" ]

cloudbuild.yaml:

steps:

  - id: 'Build'
    name: 'gcr.io/cloud-builders/docker'
    args: [
      'build',
      '-t', 'gcr.io/$PROJECT_ID/hello-world:latest',
      '.'
    ]
    env:
      - "DOCKER_BUILDKIT=1"

Update: I noticed that I was using #syntax=docker/dockerfile:experimental whereas the linked article has #syntax=docker/dockerfile:1.0-experimental. I get the same error when using 1.0-experimental.
